An hour or so later, my husband enters the kitchen, "My coffee is cold," … Continue reading What Are We “Fastening” Ourselves To?
What makes someone corrupt and what makes someone not corrupt? Today's reading shows us just why we need Jesus in our lives, and that by our own merit, we are not good. Several connections to the book of Romans appear today, which I'm excited about, and I hope you enjoy it, too! Before Continuing, Look … Continue reading We Cannot Be A “Good” Person
When my mind wanders as it had before. When the whispers linger right at my heart's door. When the floor felt like it would fall beneath me. When my world shattered You were there for me.
